Beighton Gala 2015
What a popular event this is. I was booked to perform my Punch and Judy Show and as ever when attending an event for the first time you never know what to expect. This turned out to be one of the busiest community events I have ever been to. It was buzzing with people. One of the traders told me that he comes every year and it is the best gala in the area.
There were two arenas, a fairground, bouncy castles, entertainers, side shows and numerous stalls selling all manner of things.
I’m not sure how many people come to his event but there must of been thousands. I performed four shows and had good size audiences every one.
Although I now live in Richmond, North Yorkshire I did once serve in a Territorial Army unit based in Sheffield and I have many happy memories from my time in South Yorkshire. It is always nice to return.
I am pleased to say that Mr Punch was given a warm and friendly welcome at the Beighton Gala. Lots of happy children and lots of folk enjoying themselves. What could be better.
That’s the way to do it!
